 The KISSFAQ - The KISS Album Focus: "KISS" © Julian Gill - "DESTROYER"
Bob's vision included transforming the band's approach to their craft: "With a little bit of a different approach to the songs themselves, we could create a relationship between this band and their audience which was much more emotional and much more broadly appealing...
Bob would bring the band "King Of The Night Time World." This song was written by Kim Fowley and Mark Anthony, guitarist and vocalist, respectively, in the band Hollywood Stars (Ezrin had connections to Kim and Mark from using their material on Alice Cooper albums).
Bob felt that the track was an unrealized piece on the album and that the introduction riff was not real good "rock." He has also suggested that the riff should not have been used on the song, even though that was how Gene had presented it in demo form.

Bob Ezrin was born March 25, 1949 and "grew up in the confluence of American and English culture that is Toronto." From an early age radio was his "very best friend," he recalls.

It was nice to see Bob Ezrin inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and his short acceptance speech focused on the importance of music education.

 Dick Wagner - Free Music Downloads, Videos, CDs, MP3s, Bio, Merchandise and Links
As one of renowned producer Bob Ezrin's hired guns throughout much of the '70s, guitarist Dick Wagner lent his playing (and in some cases, songwriting) talents to some of the decade's biggest hard rock albums, including Lou Reed's Rock N Roll Animal, Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare, and Kiss' Destroyer.
Although the group would break up shortly thereafter, Ezrin and Wagner had struck up a friendship, as he began inviting him (as well as another guitarist, Steve Hunter), to play on sessions by other artists he was working with.
Ezrin used the duo on Lou Reed's controversial 1973 studio release Berlin (a dark concept album that followed a pair of seedy characters beset by drug addiction, which leads to spousal abuse, prostitution, child welfare, and ultimately, death).

 Dada
With Bob Ezrin and Dick Wagner back onboard Alice produced possibly his most cerebral album which many fans rate amongst his best ever.
Unfortunately Alice's alcohol intake had reached dangerous levels and instead of touring the album, he headed into hospital to clean up (for good this time) so the album received virtually no publicity and no songs from it have ever been performed live, which is great shame.
Alice was with us for over a month in the early 80's and he and I spent many hours together hoping Bob would stay busy in the studio rather than come out to the front of the old barn and tear Alice's head off for not having a lyric ready, that Bob liked.
